Snaggable versions of this tag in my Fotki album

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X7, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Souldesigner (Ebony tube) which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching PTU kit by Niqui's Designs, also called Ebony. 

Font of choice, I am using Sweet Pea

Plugins: No outside plugins

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.

Let's get started!

Open a new canvas 850 x 850 pixels with a white background

Open element 26 copy and paste as a new layer, resize 75%, rotate left 90
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 15 copy and paste as a new layer 
click delete on your keyboard, deselect

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 55%
arrange in center of the frame area

Now add your elements:
element 31 resize 35% arrange on the right side of frame, duplicate, arrange on top left side
element 52 arrange behind frame and background paper
element 42 resize 175% arrange behind wire
element 53 rotate left 90 arrange on bottom over tube layer
element 68 resize 65% rotate left 90, arrange on bottom left below tube layer
element 10 resize 85% arrange just between the frame layer & the wire layer

crop and resize
